About This Agency:

Criterion Health Care is a home health agency based in South Texas. We provide home health care services in and around the Rio Grande Valley and remote patient monitoring (RPM) services throughout the state of Texas.

Criterion Health Care is a proud provider of remote patient monitoring (RPM) services. RPM, also known as telemonitoring, is a type of long-distance health care in which special equipment is placed in a patient's home. This equipment communicates directly with a physician or caregiver's office, making it possible to monitor important information such as weight, blood pressure, blood glucose, or heart rate on a regular basis without requiring daily trips to the doctor or daily visits from a nurse or health aide.

Home Care
In addition to remote patient monitoring (RPM) services, Criterion Health Care is a fully licensed home health agency. Our visiting nurses and social workers provide a range of premium in-home care services, including:

Skilled Nursing Services
With skilled nursing services, you or your loved one can now receive trained nursing care without leaving home. Our nurses are highly trained medical professionals who bring expertise and skill with them, making it possible to stay home while receiving:

  • Nursing visits and check-ups
  • Medication set-up and administration
  • Diabetes care
  • Wound care
  • And similar medical services

Therapeutic Care
Our therapeutic care services make it easier than ever before to care for and improve conditions that require physical or occupational therapy with in-home visits from trained therapists. Receive the best in care and education. Therapeutic care is designed to promote health and recovery after injury or illness.

Medical Social Work
When health conditions or injuries require attention from multiple physicians or other caregivers, it can be difficult to keep track and make sure that nothing falls through the cracks. A medical social worker is an advocate for patients and families who gets to know your specific, personal needs and helps ensure that your care is complete, coordinated, and thorough so that nothing falls through the cracks.

Our medical social workers visit you in your home to help you plan and take ownership of your health care.
